The wit and humour of PU

leave a comment »

PU is one of the wittiest girls I have ever around. A born comic, she is aware of her talents and wants to make a career in radio or on stage. But this being India, her parents want her to take up a “respectable” and “steady” career in India.
As she awaits a job – even while her other classmates have already started earning – PU has not lost her sense of humour:
“Since I am now sitting bekaar at home, my mom does not miss a single opportunity to make use of my skills. `Beta kuch ni kar rahe ho… chal mutter cheel,’ she will say, or `Beta bai char dino se nahin aayi hain chal zara jhadu poncha maar de.’ ”
